Agent Assisted FSBO Next Steps
If you’ve just submitted your listing details and purchased a Flat Fee MLS Listing Package, thank you for your order! Please review and e-sign the flat fee listing agreement we’ll be sending you. A listing agreement is required to post your property in RLS and other sites like StreetEasy. The agreement will be sent later today or tomorrow morning if your order came in after business hours. Your listing will be uploaded within 24 to 48 hours of the time you’ve signed the Flat-Fee Listing Agreement.
In the interim, we highly recommend you watch our Agent Assisted FSBO Training Series below so that you have the highest chance of success with your sale. Good luck!
Agent Assisted FSBO Seller Training:
How to Price Your Home as a FSBO Seller
Setting your initial asking price is the most important decision you will make as a FSBO seller in NYC. The volume of buyer inquiries you receive, how quickly you sell and whether you sell at all is directly related to the initial pricing of your property.
How to Prepare to Sell Your Home FSBO
Preparing for the Agent Assisted FSBO sale process before you list your home is a prerequisite for success. This means assembling buyer due diligence documents in advance, choosing a real estate attorney and doing your homework about how the sale process works in NYC. Check out this nifty co-op seller checklist.
How to Set Timing Expectations for Your Sale
Setting timing expectations for your sale is an important step in preparing yourself emotionally for the overall sale process. Listing your home while having unrealistic expectations for how quickly you’ll find a buyer and how soon you can close is a recipe for disaster.
How to Handle Listing Inquiries
Once your listing is up and running, you will begin receiving inquiries from interested direct buyers and buyer’s agents. It’s important to understand how inquiries are handled and how to handle follow on conversations with buyers and their agents.

How to Negotiate with Buyers
Negotiating with buyers and buyer agents requires strong interpersonal skills, creativity and the ability to listen and adapt. Learn how to negotiate as a seller in NYC.
How to Accept an Offer
Accepting an offer is an important step towards closing your deal, but it is by no means the end of the process. As a seller, it’s important to understand that there is nothing binding or contractual about accepting an offer.
How to Prepare a Deal Sheet
Preparing a deal sheet is the next step once you’ve accepted an offer as an agent-assisted FSBO seller. Completing an inaccurate or incomplete deal sheet is the easiest way to delay or derail your sale.
How the Real Estate Closing Process Works
The contract to closing process is surprisingly easy as long as you have accepted an offer from a qualified home buyer and hired a seasoned real estate attorney.
How to Receive Board Approval
Receiving condo or co-op board approval for your sale requires the submission of a complete and well-presented board application. Although a condo board cannot reject applicants in the same way a co-op can, both building types will still require a perfect application before allowing you to proceed with your sale.
